RightClick in MacOS Dock - no desktop assignment??
« on: November 29, 2018, 08:46:00 pm »
Seems that Arturia's standalone apps from V Collection 5 are the only ones on my machine (out of approx. 80 apps) that can't be assigned to a specific virtual desktop, which normally is done with right-click on the dock icon, then selecting "Options" and then "Assign to" followed by the desktop name. Funnily this feature was clearly there in the V2 versions of the single instrument apps and in Analog Lab 2, now with V3 it's gone. Any hint or solution??

Perhaps you have to contact Arturia support directly thru your account on this.
I use Windows.

That's a fantastic idea - even though it's not a biggy for me. I'm just reflecting - what is this "forum" about and what can we do with it? ;)

What do you exspect and wish for?
You can't exspect Arturia to answer every question here.

Correct. But they could speak for themselves. And it's a generic question because *every* instrument, even the new Pigment, shows this absolute mac-unlike behaviour.

I know what you mean. Arturia apps are also the only apps on my Mac which can't be full screened, even though to me that's an obvious missing feature which as never been addressed. You can of course drag any Arturia app to a different desktop.

Problem is that app windows from any Arturia app don't remember their desktop number, they will show up on the main desktop or on the last used desktop on every new app start, depending on the "Mission Control" configuration. Using the dock's "Assign to:" method, they will always stay on a dedicated desktop where i want them to be. That is independent from the fullscreen option.

Correct on all counts, but there doesn't seem to be a solution at the moment other than to drag them to the chosen screen manually.
